Not Quite Right
By Kindle Customer
Let me start by stating that every hex wrench I've bought in the last ten years has been a Bondhus, these are a failure. The small sizes:2-4mm and even the 5mm are just like little nipples on the end of a 6mm shaft, for recessed bolt heads just forget it. Without a smaller shaft to twist under torque these "nipples" will snap off and with such a thick shaft right to the end the angle drive doesn't work. Look elsewhere unless all your bolts are proud of the surface and have no nearby obstructions.

I work in a "job-shop" that manufactures parts for various companies. I am a horizontal boring bar machinist (Devlieg). There are times we will machine and assemble fixtures for our customers and in allot of cases it is a tight fit to be able to tighten the fasteners with a standard hex driver that is in the normal socket drive, and a regular "L" shape allen wrench takes a long time to get the bolt down. I bought this set and used my chapman driver and it made life allot easier. After I snug the fastener down with these inserts I then put the insert in a 1/4" socket and use the torque wrench to set the screw. I made a holder for both the SAE and metric in a block of aluminum. I highly recommend these inserts if you need to work in tight areas, I would not drive the smaller inserts with an drill, stripping or ball end removal may occur.

Excellent, hard-to-find metric hex bits
I've been looking for these for quite some time: long-shank hex bits that lock into my driver. Hardware stores don't have anything like them for some reason. I got this metric set along with the 10836 imperial set, and they're now my go-to bits. Made in the USA, with ball tips for tough angles, and less than two beans apiece? How can you go wrong. Only complaint is that the smaller bits still have fat shanks, making them difficult to squeeze into tight spaces, and useless for recessed screws. Overall, a no-brainer.
